Word of the Day... August 20, 2013


The Star of Revelation
  For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.  —Hebrews 4:12


I read this today and was so blessed by it.  I love the way Pastor Greg has been blessed in the teaching of the Word of God.  I hope you are just as blessed by the mighty power of God’s Word as I was when I read this.


Just think of the power of God's words. In the beginning, God spoke our world and the universe into existence. When He said, "Let there be light," there was light. When Jesus was on the Sea of Galilee and a violent storm erupted, He said, "Peace, be still!" and it stopped. When Peter tried to defend Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus told him, "Put your sword in its place. . . . Do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He will provide Me with more than twelve legions of angels?"


The same voice that can create the heavens and Earth, stop storms, and summon angels will one day bring judgment. Revelation 19:15 says, "Out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. . . ."

As John wrote down the words of Revelation from the island of Patmos, he fell at the feet of the angel who showed these things to him. But the angel said, "See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant. . . . Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."


For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. . . . What does this mean? It means that if you read the book of Revelation but do not grow in your love for Jesus, then you have missed the point. Revelation, which means "unveiling," is not just an unveiling of our future; it is also an unveiling of Jesus. It is all about Jesus. He is the star of Revelation. He is the focus of Revelation. And He should be the star of and focus of our lives as well.



We have just started to read and study the Book of Revelation at church and it is a powerful testament of Jesus Christ!!!  I thought I would be afraid but instead I am blessed and amazed as I read each page in this glorious testament to Jesus!!!  Oh and by the way there is a blessing for everyone who reads and studies this book.  Does it get any better than this?  I hope all of you have a Simply Heavenly day!!!
